November 6th Class – Topic: Anxiety/Depression and Adjustment – with Karen C. Doe, LCSW-R, ACSW, CSW-G from Samaritan Behavioral Health

A properly working brain sustains life. It keeps our heart beating and helps us walk, talk, breathe, eat, remember, and solve problems.

Acute brain injuries involve sudden damage to the brain and its functions. They include traumatic brain injuries (TBI), strokes (CVA), brain tumors, brain infections such as meningitis, vitamin deficiencies, and many others. Brain injuries of all kinds have a life-altering and sometimes isolating effect on the survivor and his or her loved ones.

The purpose of this group is to provide social support for those recovering from sudden brain injuries and their caregivers. It is an opportunity to share experiences, challenges, and resources.

Group meetings typically consist of a short educational lesson, video, or guest speaker, followed by a group discussion. Light refreshments are provided. Topics for upcoming sessions are chosen in advance with input from current group members.
